ENGL-101C Critical Thinking and Composition – Kerrie Kawasaki-Hull

Catalog Description: “Students will learn critical thinking skills and will use them to read and evaluate essays in a precise, logical way. The emphasis will be upon critical analysis and upon the students' development of effective, written arguments.” Counselor Description: “This course is designed to continue the work in reading and composition started in ENGL 101A with more complex reading material and more challenging written assignments. In addition to an introduction to critical thinking, ENGL 101C involves the writing of investigative papers such as analyses and evaluations of argumentative writing totaling 6000 words. It is required for all those UC transfer students who are completing IGETC and fulfills the critical thinking requirement for CSU General Education. “ Revision to: student learning outcomes, course outline, course assignments, methods of evaluation/assessment, methods of instruction, textbooks, supplies.
